Summary:Confederate Museum, Richmond, Virginia, circa 1951-1970. Caption reads: "This building, now the Confederate Museum was the White House of the Confederacy from 1861-1865. Here lived President Jefferson Davis. Here came the generals to confer, the couriers bearing news of the various battles. Most fittingly, the women of the South have made this a treasure-house of things Confederate. In the museum you may now see the uniforms, swords, camp chest and multitudinous relics of Generals Robert E. Lee, Thomas J. ('Stonewall') Jackson, Joseph E. Johnson, J.E.B. Stuart and most of the other Confederate heroes. The student of that phase of our history finds here invaluable historical papers and files. Make a U-turn and proceed west on Clay to Eleventh."
